Media Reports of H7N9 Case In Guizhou Province

Credit Wikipedia


Although I've found nothing official on the Qiannan Health and Family Planning website, for the past 24 hours local media has been reporting on an H7N9 case hospitalized in Qiannan, Guizhou Province. 

Many provinces simply post a monthly total in their EOM epidemiology report to Beijing, and never make a `real-time' public announcement on their website.  Others simply take a few days to post something. 

Since I'm seeing several different reports, filed by different reporters (as opposed to the `echo' reports that get reposted from one source), I'll go ahead and post this with the caveat that it isn't yet  official.

If confirmed, this would only make Guizhou's 3rd H7N9 case.
